    CIA, FBI launch manhunt for leaker who gave top-secret documents to WikiLeaks

    Quote CBS News has learned that a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.

    The CIA and FBI are conducting a joint investigation into one of the worst security breaches in CIA history, which exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.

    FBI Admits It Was Not The Russians - Launches Manhunt For "Insider" Who Leaked CIA Docs To WikiLeaks

    by Tyler Durden
    Apr 20, 2017 9:05 AM

    Having exclaimed that WikiLeaks is "a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia," laying the blame for every embarrassing leak at Moscow's footsteps, the FBI and CIA have admitted that they are searching for an "insider" (not a Russian) who exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.



    As CBS News reports, a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.
    Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider -- either a CIA employee or contractor -- who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.

    Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.

    The trove was published in March by the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks.
    In his first public comments as director of the CIA just last week, Mike Pompeo railed against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.
    “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” he said.
    WikiLeaks has said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence. The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures or on the status of the investigation.

    It seems once again that WikiLeaks' facts were 'facts' and CIA/FBI 'facts' were 'fake'.

    21 April, 2017

    Today, April 21st 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the User Guide for CIA's "Weeping Angel" tool - an implant designed for Samsung F Series Smart Televisions. Based on the "Extending" tool from MI5/BTSS, the implant is designed to record audio from the built-in microphone and egress or store the data.

    The classification marks of the User Guide document hint that is was originally written by the MI5/BTSS and later shared with the CIA. Both agencies collaborated on the further development of the malware and coordinated their work in Joint Development Workshops.

    Jeff Sessions prepares charges to seek arrest of Julian Assange (April 20,2017)

    Skip to 16 minute mark for question about Julian Assange.



    From The Washington Post -

    Justice Dept. debating charges against WikiLeaks members in revelations of diplomatic, CIA materials

    Federal prosecutors are weighing whether to bring criminal charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization, taking a second look at a 2010 leak of diplomatic cables and military documents and investigating whether the group bears criminal responsibility for the more recent revelation of sensitive CIA cyber-tools, according to people familiar with the case.

    The Justice Department under President Barack Obama decided not to charge WikiLeaks for revealing some of the government’s most sensitive secrets — concluding that doing so would be akin to prosecuting a news organization for publishing classified information. Justice Department leadership under President Trump, though, has indicated to prosecutors that it is open to taking another look at the case, which the Obama administration did not formally close.

    It is not clear whether prosecutors are also looking at WikiLeaks’ role last year in publishing emails from the Democratic National Committee and the account of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John D. Podesta, which U.S. officials have said were hacked by the Russian government. Officials have said individuals “one step” removed from the Kremlin passed the stolen messages to WikiLeaks as part of a broader Russian plot to influence the 2016 presidential election.

    Prosecutors in recent weeks have been drafting a memo that contemplates charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization, possibly including conspiracy, theft of government property or violating the Espionage Act, officials said. The memo, though, is not complete, and any charges against members of WikiLeaks, including founder Julian Assange, would need approval from the highest levels of the Justice Department.

He'd be safe in russia but i doubt russia will tick off the u.s. by offering him asylum. I wish they would

    I think we can all agree, "something" changed when Syria was attacked which included placing that moron Pompeo as the new head of the CIA. As I mentioned several posts back on the "Transition into Trump" thread; immediately the outing of Susan Rice's leaks (and all the other juicy stuff, etc) stopped in it's tracks, as if we'd suddenly entered another timeline and none of that existed, Pizzagate & Pedogate included. This happened at almost the same time Alex Jones backed down and "apologised" for his earlier accusations surrounding Pizzagate/Pedogate.

    Trump is being compromised IMO, as is Sessions. (It's unlikely Trump would have been elected if it wasn't for Wikileaks' revelations). This isn't going away.

    Quote I'm posting this video as an example of what WikiLeaks refers to as the deep state...

    Going a little off topic but this testimony is compelling and I'm sold, wow. If he's who this site says he is, then wow again. This was posted 11 hours ago and, as far as I can see, the original video without english subtitles has only been out for a month (according to the video on what looks like Bernard's website).

    WikiLeaks Vault 7 part VI: Weeping Angel is listening... (April 21, 2017)



    Today WikiLeaks released another set of Vault 7 documents, this time on "Weeping Angel" - an implant designed for Samsung F Series Smart Televisions. This would be the second major CIA tool which notably references the British television show, Dr. Who, alongside "Sonic Screwdriver" in Dark Matter.

    The tools in Weeping Angel allow the CIA to record audio from the built-in microphones of these TVs in addition to exfiltrating and storing data on their memory. Weeping Angel was derived from yet another tool called "Extending" which was originally developed by the British intelligence agency, MI5.

    The classification marks of the User Guide, namely "UK EYES ONLY", hint that is was originally written by the MI5/BTSS and later shared with the CIA. Both agencies collaborated on the further development of the malware and coordinated their work in Joint Development Workshops.

    This article will break down Weeping Angel bit by bit, but the original documents from WikiLeaks can be found here.

    Other parts to this series include:

    Part I: The CIA and NyanCat: The hackers and tools of Vault 7's "Year Zero"
    Part II: "Dark Matter" - All your Macintosh are belong to CIA
    Part III: Marble Framework - The CIA's cloaking device for hackers
    Part IV: Grasshopper and more research challenges!
    Part V: HIVE, Longhorn and the CIA's reign of cyberterror

    Extending

    As mentioned earlier the entirety of Weeping Angel was based on British spyware known as Extending. Extending is configured on a Linux PC, and then deployed onto the TV using a USB stick. Audio files can then be extracted using a USB stick or setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot with-in range of the TV. It is also possible to listen to audio exfiltration live, using the Live Listen Tool, designed for use on a Windows OS. The implant can be uninstalled by inserting a USB stick into the TV or configuring a Death Date.

    Essentially the operative must have "close access" to the TV system itself in order to physically load the malware. Afterwards, however, audio and data exfiltration can be accessed remotely. One particularly unnerving feature of Extending was its ability to "fake-off record":

    Quote EXTENDING will continue to record audio, even whilst the TV appears to be off. This is achieved by intercepting the command for the TV to switch-off and turning off the TV screen, leaving the processor running.
    Methods of detection and weaknesses

    Documentation for Extending includes several "known issues" and bugs which make the operation of Extending apparent to the target or hinder Extending's functions:

    Microphone Sharing

    The current implant cannot share the microphone with other applications. Therefore if Voice Recognition is turned on, or if an application such as Skype is started, our application will close its access to the microphone. When the other application stops using the microphone again, EXTENDING will start recording again. In future releases of the implant we will be able to record from the microphone simultaneously with other applications.

    Fake-off – TV Communications

    When the TV is in Fake-off mode the processor functionality has not been limited. Practically, this means that the TV will still flash the LEDs on USB drives when they are inserted and continue to send packets on the network. Many Smart TVs do this as part of their functionality; however Samsung TVs do not normally. As an improvement for the next release of the implant we hope to reduce the processor functionality when the implant enters Fake-off mode. This will involve just recording from the TV, and only connecting to the SSIDs set in the implant Settings file.

    Fake-off – LED

    When the TV is in Fake-off mode the “Samsung” LED at the front and centre of the TV remains on.

    Wi-Fi Interference

    The EXTENDING implant will interrupt a user’s use of the wireless card on the TV. If a target is
    connected to their home wireless network, then EXTENDING will break this connection when it detects the presence of the SSID it wishes to connect to.

    audioRecordingMode=0

    When operating in audioRecordingMode=0 (not recording any audio) the implant will stop running when fake-off mode is entered. The source of this problem has been located and will be fixed in the next release.

    Lag before application starts

    The implant is started by the TV when the TV powers on. It can take up to 30 seconds from the user turning the TV on for EXTENDING to start running. As the exploit relies on being started by the TV then there is no way to avoid this.

    A Side-effect of this is that if the user turns the TV on and then off quickly and before EXTENDING has started up, then the TV does not enter Fake-off mode. The next time the TV is turned on, the implant will still start as normal, however we will have missed a period of Fake-off recording.

    Smart HUB setup

    To install our application the Smart HUB needs to be setup and the license agreements accepted. It is only possible to do this with an internet connection.

    Smart HUB Storage Available

    When on the Smart Hub “More Apps” page the available storage space is shown in the bottom right hand corner. If the implant is configured to record audio to the “mtd_rwcommon” folder area, then this storage will appear fuller as the implant records audio. However it is impossible to discover what is using this storage without exploiting the TV to gain command line access. Limiting the “storageFoldermaxStorage” setting has reduced the potential impact of this.

    We have switches on our power outlets so I was confused at first, until I remembered you don't have switches on your outlets. It needs to be switched on, so yeah that would work.

    Until you got a switch, after you've been using it and turned it off, you could turn it back on and turn it back off after a couple of seconds and, due to the lag, EXTENDING wouldn't have time to start running and they don't have any way around that.

    You'd still have the problem of when the TV is on, if you can use it all as normal with voice recognition on then that would deal with it but they're fixing that weakness.

    That's all short of taking it back to the shop if you saw the LED still on when it was in fake off mode and getting your money back because it's 'broken'. That way you make it Samsung's best interest to make sure the CIA doesn't 'break' their products.
    Never give up on your silly, silly dreams.

    You mustn't be afraid to dream a little BIGGER, darling.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised to find that some of those huge TVs even have rechargable battery cells on the circuit board inside them that can run low power activities for a day or two even when isolated from the mains. If the signal transmission is done over wifi it could still be sending something unless the whole wifi hub is off.

    I know nothing about TV so take that as a very non expert view.

    Yeah, I thought of that too, that or they're still using power for the processor while in off mode, however, Samsung TVs typically don't (see the "Fake-off – TV Communications" section) and considering they achieve fake off mode by intercepting the command for the TV to turn off and just turn off the TV screen to leave the processor running, and they lose recording time when Extended doesn't have time to start running, I figure that's not an issue with the Samsung TVs.

    I'm no expert either though.

    Heads up: Leaders from the Five Eyes intelligence network to meet in New Zealand - may be related... (in fact, they are here now).

    Revealed: The 'very, very important' people coming to NZ

    Isaac Davison
    Isaac Davison is a NZ Herald political reporter.
    3:56 PM Thursday Apr 20, 2017

    The highly secretive meeting being held in Queenstown this weekend is a gathering of intelligence and security agencies related to the Five Eyes spying network, the Herald understands.

    Among the people believed to be attending are Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo.

    It is understood about 15 agencies which carry out intelligence for Five Eyes - the spying partnership of the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand - are attending the conference.

    In a statement released yesterday, a spokesman for Prime Minister Bill English confirmed a number of senior officials were coming for a conference hosted by the Government, but would not reveal what the conference was.

    "Due to specific security requirements we cannot comment further at this time. However, as police have pointed out they are not aware of a visit to Queenstown by a current or former head of state."

    Speculation about the visit was sparked after the Otago Daily Times reported a "very, very important person" was set to arrive in the region and strong security measures were underway in preparation.

    The ODT said it was understood the operation would continue for about a week with golf featuring on the itinerary...

    A moron and insane. I liked it better when I just thought they were liars.

    According to Duane Clarridge (chief of CIA's Latin American division 1981-1987), their national security interests give them the right to do what they do to other countries, to protect themselves, because they end up protecting all of us, and "let's not forget that". O_o

    "We'll intervene whenever we decide it's in our national security interest to intervene, and if you don't like it, lump it, get used to it, world."

    Absolutely psychopatic comments from the ex-CIA chief in South America. You want to see psychopathy in action, there it is. And we know all too well that he national interest have to do with US corporate interest in Chile in this case, not anything that would threaten the US as such other than economic greed.

    As for no more than 200 death Under Pinochet, this shows us how psychopath justify their interventions, their stance. Little death for our interests to prosper. We do understand what is happening in Syria with such comments: nobody cares if few children have been gazed and died, in fact, and mostly not the CIA, it is obvious here. When they say they attack because children were gazed, they are lying, there is other objectives and the children are used for those. And they blind themselves to the truth and reality of others lifes.

    Alone, by myself, with the tiny minuscule group of Chileans I knew in the eighties, there were more than 200 of their family members who had died or disapeared. And I knew about nobody. This CIA chief is flatly lying. It has to be in the tens of thousands.

    The CIA rationalise their crimes and lie about what they can't rationalise, they can't at all be trusted. Duane Clarridge's attitude is not unique, we can see it being played out all the time.

    The following quote is from Global Research's article, The CIA’s “Operation Condor”: Latin America’s Dirty War, Death Squads and The Disappeared.

    Quote And so the continental scale covert extermination campaign that was Condor vanished from Latin America leaving an estimated toll of 35,000 people dead (more than 10,000 of them in Argentina) and leaving their grieving families still trying to learn what had happened to their disappeared love ones. And while Condor was proceeding, the rightist military regimes in each of these Latin American countries were carrying out mass murders of citizens that resulted in the deaths and disappearances of an estimated 350,000 people and the imprisonment and torture of hundreds of thousands of others. Millions of people also became exiles and political refugees.
